Music by DJ Tanoa.

This week, NightLife travels back in time to the roaring 1920s in honor of Steinhart Aquarium’s 90th anniversary.

Old-timey cocktails and the vintage vinyl stylings of DJ Tanoa set the mood, while African Hall transforms into a swinging speakeasy with swing dancing lessons nearby from Lindy in the Park.

Artifacts from the Academy’s archives celebrate the aquarium’s legacy of sharing the wonders of fish, frogs, and feathered friends with the world. See how much has changed and what remains timeless after all these years during a talk by Aquarium Director Bart Shepherd and Chair of Aquatic Biology (and former Aquarium Director) John McCosker.

Plus, make an aquarium-themed craft with the experts from SCRAP.

In the aquarium, mix and mingle with the biologists who care for the Academy’s 38,000 animal residents and hear tales about their favorite creatures, and catch two evening dive shows in the Philippine Coral Reef.

In the planetarium, travel to breathtaking depths with special screenings of Coral: Rekindling Venus.
